hello everybody, just picked up a 95 9c1 in really great cond, my only problem is that when i start the motor and put it in drive there is a really bad hesitation when i take off. but after 1-2 miles clears right up. if i shut it down right after it clears up it does it again. once it clears it drive like a dream. any ideas whats going on? car has 165000 miles changed plugs,oil, and put air intake with k n open filter. thanks again

ok so first off w over a 100,000 miles your trans is running on borrowed time i have 200,000 on mine and i dnt think its been dropped or a new trans put in it,
anyways i have a slight leak from the heavy duty trans coolant lines when my car hestitates going into reverse it means its low on trans fluid.... im not sure if you just need to check your trans fluid or have your trans looked at by a trans shop, either way when they drop the pan they can tell u if you can put a stage 1 or stage 2 shift kit in it prob a very needed upgrade.....

they do this bye seeing if there are any metal shavings etc in your trans fluid that determines how strong u can build your trans,:biggrin:

It could be a weak spring on your EGR valve. Disconnect the vacuum line to your EGR and see if the problem happens. If it doesn't then you know to replace your EGR valve.
